I'm a 36 year old man and I am afraid of the dark. I believe in monsters in my closet and under my bed. I can't sleep unless a night light is on in my room. I heard a noise one night that sounded like it was coming from my closet, which turned out just to be my cat fumbling around in there. But at first I didn't know what it was and it scared me to the point of where I shit my pants! I had to take a shower and change and put the soiled underwear and pants in the washer. I had shit running down my leg! The smell was so strong and awful that even the cat ran out of the room! I need to get over this fear of the dark.
